Miles came to Carolina as a top all-around
gymnast from Chapel Hill High
School. From 1975-1977 she won the
AAU State Championship on the uneven
bars. She also placed fifth on the balance
beam in the YMCA Nationals in 1976.
However, Miles suffered a knee injury

Beth Miller said. "She became a real

Her scoring statistics are not impressive,
she's made no All-America teams, and
they won't have her doing television ads
and selling autographed soccer balls, but
the attitude, dedication' and inspiring
leadership of co-captain Rosemary Carbery
have been definite factors in the success
of Carolina's women's soccer team.
"I'm just lucky to have had a chance to
play with such a super group of people,"
Carbery said. "As a new sport, we knew
we had no way to go but up. We knew
that the only chance we had to succeed
was for all of us to get along and co-operate.
And we have succeeded. We've in
spired each other as the year progressed,
and it helps when your coach is as in
spiring and caring as ours."
Carbery plans to continue in athletics,
by jogging daily, and entering occasional
road races. As far as the advantages of
her athletic career at Carolina, Carbery
said, "I've learned to extend myself.
There's always something putting a drain
on your time, but I've learned to cope.

A much-traveled man, Dek Potts set
tled down for his senior season on the
UNC tennis team to finish out a career
which featured a 72-18 record. But a back
injury made the year fairly disappointing,
the Washington, D.C., native said.
Co-captain Potts had established him
self as the No. 2 singles player after a solid
16-1 singles record last year. But the irony
of his early-season injury is that Potts
could have graduated a year ago.
"I took off the fall semester so I could
come back and play this spring," Potts
said. I could have graduated last year.
The irony of the whole thing is that I mis
sed three-fourths of the season.
"It's had beneficial results," Potts said.
"I learned a lot about myself as a person."
That's not all Potts will be taking with
him from Chapel Hill. Potts said winning
the'Atlantic Coast Conference title in his
freshman year (1977-78) was a big high
light, but not the biggest.
"Beating Georgia last year was a big
thrill because it was a total team win,"
Potts will especially remember Coach
Don Skakle, who died in 1980.
"He was the type of coach who relied
on the players themselves to play as a unit.
I liked that whole attitude of a team as
pect," he said. "In what people consider
an individual sport, Coach Skakle brought
that team spirit, out."
' , Potts cites the happy .and. enthusiastic
atmosphere on campus and a well-rounded
environment as an important part of his
years at UNC.
"It's been a stimulating environment,
wanted to go to Dartmouth, Harvard, or
Brown, but Carolina offered me a John
son scholarship. I visited here, and just
loved it. Also, with seven brothers and
sisters, the money didn't hurt. I've never
regretted that decision."
Carbery will be attending MBA school
at either Texas or Stanford, and said,
"I've come down to the South, and now
I'm going to head out West. But I'll miss
Chapel Hill." '
Carbery, along with teammate Molly
Curent, will be graudating Phi Beta
Kappa. "I think there's a definite advan
tage to this school, and that is the variety.
I've been able to grow academically, ath-
letically, and personally. Whatever you
want to do, there is somebody here who
shares your interests."
In addition to being an honored scho
lar, and co-captain of the soccer team,
Carbery has found time to help coach
Rainbow Soccer, along with several of her
teammates. "I think our time together
outside practice definitely makes a dif
ference on the team," Carbery said. "It's
things like that that have helped us to do
education-wise as well as socially," Potts
said. "That's mainly what attracted me
to Chapel Hill."
Potts has. always been interested in in
ternational studies and travel and after he
gets his degree this spring he says he in
tends to go abroad, possibly entering
foreign affairs as a career. He took off his
sophomore year at UNC to study abroad
"You forget the individual matches but
I'll remember most the guys on the team
and cherish the times with them," Potts
said. "I've seen a lot of colleges and very
few stand up to UNC. I feel fortunate
that I came here."

Goalie has been key to tough defense
For the past three years of North
Carolina soccer the keystone to a tough
Tar Heel defense has been Kevin Kane's
work in the goal. In a sport where solid
defense is at a premium, Kane has
helped make the Carolina defense one of
the best in the Southeast.
Kane graduates from Carolina
holding almost every major school
record in goalkeeping from most shut
outs in a season to best career goals
against average. Twice the Nyack, N.Y. 1
native was named to the second team
All-Atlantic Coast Conference team.
Soccer is one of the fastest growing
sports in America and Kane said the
game is now attracting a different type
of player than in the past. "We're seeing
more of a speciality type of player, not
just a good athlete that likes to play
soccer," he said. "The game now has
more of the pure soccer player. The
players are also starting a lot younger

Kane has started in the goal for them,
but for all those victories, two big goals

NCAA tournament have eluded

that we would win the ACC," Kane

said. "We were just trying to be
respectable. We don't have the
scholarship money to compete with
Clemson and N.C. State. We won't do
well with what we have until they declare
men's- soccer a national priority sport.
Then we'll be very competitive.".
While the Tar Heels may never have
had the talent of the b?gger name con
ference foes, Kane said that this only
made Carolina play harder. "The game I
remember the most was against Clemson
my sophomore year when we tied them
0-0," Kane said. "That was the year
Clemson was runner-up in the national
finals and we weren't supposed to even
be on the field, but everybody gave a
superhuman effort and we tied them."
Kane said the soccer program is not
progressing in relation to other ACC
schools and may have problems in the
future. "We've been lucky to have done
as well as we have," he said. "The
program has been great to me and I like
to see it get what it deserves."
Kane said he will continue on with the
program as goalie coach for both the
men's and women's teams. "I'm sorry
it's over," he said. "It'll be hard not
playing, but I hope I can contribute to
the Carolina program as a coach."
